It’s been seven years (and several websites) since I first started this thing, today.
Crazy indeed. I would have NEVER thought seven years ago I’d still be doing this then, or that this comic would even REMOTELY be touching on what it is now. Way back, it was nothing but a “I should do a comic with characters based on people involved in the site!” thing.
Whereas now I’ve got more continuity in my head than I can dump out onto a screen with pictures.
Hopefully this year I can streamline some stuff. And try and get some more readers. But then, I said the same damn thing last year, and I’m STILL not at the jumping on point I’d worked out back then.
Maybe I should actually see about posting stuff to tumblr for a change.
So the reason there’s no Friday update like I was initially hoping is simple…
I got caught up in website layout upgrades.
We’re still not 100% there, but the old sidebar has been remade and, while not 100% functional yet (need to get it working still for archives and the like), cast pages are now something that exists. Still playing with their overall layout, but liking the new setup that removes my need to actually make a page for that character. Opens the door to doing more tagging of characters who really have no place getting a bio due to lack of usage but could stand to have a character entry about them.
So yeah! Enjoy, and do give feedback on what you like/don’t like. A lot of this stuff is easy to tweak and CSS manipulation is like some form of dark magic that shouldn’t exist but does and is almost all-powerful in what it lets you do.
So, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, this site looks…. yeah. It looks broken.
And there’s probably a bunch of broken links happening too.
There’s also a very good reason why – namely, I upgraded to the latest ComicPress, hopelessly naive, not realizing that it would pretty much slaughter all my site layout/customization.
Important thing though is that all comics have been migrated over, and that I’m probably gonna throw in updates while I slowly code this thing up to snuff.
